Vagrant. One record. One heard by Carol and Andrew Iles in November 2002 (LHI Museum card). This species normally migrates northward to New Guinea and the Solomons. However, it has also been reported as a vagrant to both New Zealand and New Caledonia (Heather & Robertson 1996; Hindwood 1953, AM O.39157; Barré & Bachy 2003).
